Real Madrid’s win over Getafe on Saturday was not enough to stop Barcelona from winning the La Liga title. Yet, the result helped Los Blancos maintain their momentum during a crucial period and was possible only through a Marco Asensio goal.

The 27-year-old has exploded into the campaign despite the rocky start he faced to the 2022/23 season. He has already amassed nine goals and six assists in 28 league appearances this season and is one of the leading options on the right wing.

The Spaniard’s contract in Madrid expires in June and both parties have been working hard towards what initially appeared to be a complicated renewal. MARCA provides an update on Asensio’s situation.

According to the Spanish outlet, Real Madrid have sent Asensio a second renewal offer after the first did not suffice the player’s expectations. The 27-year-old wants more prominence and minutes in the team but knows that he has the club and coach’s complete confidence.

The sensation at the moment leans towards Asensio staying at the club. After all, Florentino Perez himself told the player last January that there would be no problem in renewing his contract.

With at least five more games to go before the season ends, Asensio is Real Madrid’s third-highest goalscorer this season in La Liga and has matched his best numbers for the club. It is thus not surprising that the administration decided to take a U-turn on his renewal.

The Spaniard has no shortage of suitors across the globe. Arch-rivals Barcelona, and most recently Aston Villa are some of the teams that have explored the possibility of signing Asensio.

Real Madrid’s second renewal offer is said to have been received well by Asensio and there is optimism that an agreement can be reached soon. At the moment, however, all focus is on the tie against Manchester City.

    Marco is our one of the most valuable and excellent assets and his performance is undoubtedly superb…. AND…. more game time is also needed….if he gets more play time surely he will surpass Rodrigo Goes (our superb performer)….

Real Madrid set out on a mission to change the minds of Dani Ceballos, Marco Asensio and Nacho Fernandez earlier this week. After all, all three players were contemplating a departure from the club for a gross lack of minutes.

Los Blancos’ latest approach seems to have impacted Ceballos’ position in a positive fashion. However, Fabrizio Romano reveals that it has not changed Marco Asensio’s mind.

According to the Italian journalist, the Spaniard will leave Real Madrid at the end of the season as a free agent.

Of the numerous options on his table, he sees Aston Villa and PSG to be the best bets. In fact, Villa have already submitted their opening bid for the player as revealed by Fabrizio Romano once again.

After a dramatic final day of action in the Premier League, Aston Villa finished in the European spots and will participate in the UEFA Conference League next season. While a move to the English club would be a steep step down, it will see Asensio receive regular playing time.

Paris-Saint Germain, on that front, appears the more probable destination. The French club are close to losing both Lionel Messi and Neymar Jr ahead of the new season, and Asensio would thus fit in as a starting quality winger. Moreover, they offer Champions League football.

The Spaniard’s role at Real Madrid this season has not been minor by any means considering his contributions. In 30 La Liga appearances, the 27-year-old has scored nine goals and provided six assists in addition to creating nine big chances and averaging 1.4 key passes per game.

However, that does not satisfy the winger who wishes to be a starter week in and week out. His departure in June appears to be now written in stone, and the club should feel hard done to not make a penny of his move.

Many in Los Blancos’ administration see Brahim Diaz as a direct replacement for the Spanish international if he leaves. Needless to say, the AC Milan star’s future will closely depend on Asensio’s situation.
